My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensure customers pay the lowest water rates practical, and communicate proactively with customers to make sure they receive the best possible services at the lowest cost.



California State University at Long Beach Masters Degree, Public Administration, with emphasis in special district governance and policy setting (1984)



I have served on the Board of Directors of El Toro Water District [ETWD] since 2014.  I am ETWD’s alternate representative to the South Orange County Wastewater Authority, serving on its Finance Committee.  I also represent ETWD at Orange County LAFCO, and the ACWA/Joint Powers Insurance Authority.

My professional experience of 43 years includes serving as general manager for five water agencies. I graduated from UCLA, and was awarded a Master’s Degree from CSULB.  I earned operator certifications in Water Distribution/D-4 and Water Treatment/T-2 from State of California’s Water Resources Control Board. I also received a gubernatorial appointment, serving three years on the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board. 

 During my tenure, El Toro WD has achieved significant recognition for consistent transparency and excellence in all administrative, operational and financial policies, practices and programs. This has been reflected by the following major California water industry awards received including but not limited to: the District of Distinction accreditation by the California Special Districts Association Special District Leadership Foundation; the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada; the American Water Works Association Public Communications Achievement Award; and the California WateReuse Association Recycled Water Agency of the Year.
